THE NOISE AND HIGHWAY TRACTION PROPERTIES OF HEAVY TRUCK TIRES

This paper provides a common data base of noise and traction properties for a sample of heavy truck tires. It provides objective information which contrasts these characteristics. It postulates that tires exhibiting improved traction performance are generally those whose tread patterns yield lower noise output. Conversely, the tire which exhibits less desirable peak longitudinal traction properties has been bound to be noisier. The degree of disadvantage incurred by the bias lug-rear, bias or radial rib-front configuration cannot yet be objectified within current technology. /GMRL/
